[IC] Scylla - a modern, compact ergonomic split keyboard
« on: Mon, 26 April 2021, 14:49:00 »


Introducing the Scylla

A modern, compact ergonomic split keyboard based on the Dactyl Manuform.

If you are interested, please fill in this form:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf7fMUA1SxY5Kq29Nh8jqGQ9h0IxySnbKjqaCTc-QrbH_tffA/viewform?usp=sf_link. Thanks !!

I've been designing Dactyl Manuforms for two years, and made the open-source Skeletyl - https://github.com/Bastardkb/Skeletyl, and TBK Mini - https://github.com/Bastardkb/TBK-Mini

Now with all that CAD experience, I set out to design a brand new 6x4+5 dacman, made for no compromises. Low profile, sharp and compact design, high-quality print and components.
With 1 year of building Dactyl Manuforms, I did all I could to ensure a great product and build experience.

I'm posting here to get a general idea of the interest behind this keyboard, and gather some feedback before launch.

- same layout as a dactyl manuform Mini
- per-key RGB (optional)

Technical details
